Alternate mark inversion (AMI)

November 2, 2012 10:26 am

Alternate mark inversion (AMI)

Alternate mark inversion (AMI) is a digital transmission technique in which binary values are sent by three voltage states.

  1. ‘0’ bits by a voltage of 0 volts.
  2. ‘1’ bits by a voltage of +V volts or -V volts alternatively

In AMI, zeros are represented by 01 during each bit cell

Ones are represented by 11 or 00, alternately, during each bit cell

A logical “0” is represented by 0 volts; A logical 0 is represented by no symbol

A logical 1 by pulses of alternating polarity.

  • The alternating coding prevents the build-up of a D.C. voltage level down the cable.
  • A logical “1” is represented by either a positive voltage or a negative voltage so that each alternate “1” is represented by a voltage level that is the opposite of that which represented the previous “1”.

The result is a digital waveform that has zero DC voltage on the line.

AMI (Alternate Mark Inversion) is a synchronous clock encoding technique which uses bipolar pulses to represent logical 1 value.

AMI Data Encoding

  • Line-code type used on T1 and E1 circuits.
  • AMI requires that the sending device maintain ones density. Ones density is not maintained independent of the data stream. Sometimes called binary coded alternate mark inversion
  • Typically implemented as a RZ code
  • Little or no DC content in signal
  • Lacks transparency particularly during long sequences of binary ‘0’

    NSA installed spies in virtual Games

    Games “are built and operated by companies looking to make money, so the players’ identity and activity is tracked,” said Peter W. Singer of the Brookings Institution, an author of “Cybersecurity and Cyberwar: What Everyone Needs to Know.” “For terror groups looking to keep their communications secret, there are far more effective and easier ways to do so than putting on a troll avatar.” The surveillance, which also included Microsoft’s Xbox Live, could raise privacy concerns.

    Discovery of DNA From Ancient Site in Spain Reshapes Human Family Tree

    The term Denisovan, distinct to both modern humans and Neanderthals, was coined just three years ago based on some limited tooth morphology, but predominantly on the distinct DNA sequenced from a 41,000 year-old toe bone found in central Asia. Since then, anthropologists have theorized that Denisovans were contemporary Asian “cousins” to Neanderthals found in Europe and the Middle East, and to modern humans who were already living throughout Africa and were venturing out of the continent for the first time […]
